Some of the Goulburn Valley’s most promising football talents are in the Murray Bushrangers’ class of 2018.

A host of players have been included in the Bushies 2018 TAC Cup girls squad after a long preseason saw the list cut from more than 70 footballers.

Shepparton Notre has proved a breeding ground for players looking to take the next step in their football career.

The reigning premier of the youth girls competition have five who will pull on the Murray top.

Ada Chessor, Grace Egan, Amy Duguid, Emily Balaburov and Sophie Damon all were standouts during preseason and will be representing the Bears.

But plenty of solid work from clubs across the Shepparton District Junior Football Association youth girls competition has a further 16 players included in the 45-person squad.

Shepparton United is thrilled to send representatives Kate Adams, Ella Hibble, Ellie Mifka and Charli Boschetti into the program following key performances in the first year the girls team has existed.

Finley’s strength has been clear for all to see and a handful of its players will come under the guidance of head coach Sam Ahmet.

Kayla Smith, Holly Robinson, Hayley Doohan, Elle Brooks and Eloise Ashley-Cooper will represent the Cats as Mooroopna guns Millie Brown, Bec Webster and Tamara Smith join.

The region’s representatives are rounded out by Northern Angels talents Tali Verhoeven and Brooke Monk as well as Euroa rising stars Sophie Locke and Nikki Watts.

The announcement of the Murray Bushrangers girls coincides with the opening of the AFLW season, in the midst of its first round.
